Fluid Mechanics “Men never do evil so cheerfully and completely as when they do so from religious conviction.” —Blaise Pascal

Density Density important property of materials (solids, liquids, gases) measure of compactness of how much mass an object occupies “lightness” or “heaviness” of materials of the same size

Density in equation form: units: grams or kilograms volume: cm3 or m3 example: density of mercury is 13.6 g/cm3, so mercury has 13.6 times as much mass as an equal volume of water (density 1 g/cm3)

To get a liter of ice you’d have to shave part of it off to be the same size. So there is less water in a liter of ice. B. less

Pressure the force per unit area that one object exerts on another
in equation form: depends on area over which force is distributed units: N/m2, lb/ft2, or Pa (Pascals)

Pressure example: The teacher between nails is unharmed because force is applied over many nails. Combined surface area of the nails results in a tolerable pressure that does not puncture the skin.

Pressure in a Liquid force per unit area that a liquid exerts on an object depth dependent and not volume dependent example: swim twice as deep, then twice as much weight of water above you produces as much pressure on you

Pressure in a Liquid acts equally in all directions example:
your ears feel the same amount of pressure under water no matter how you tip your head bottom of a boat is pushed upward by water pressure pressure acts upward when pushing a beach ball under water

Buoyancy in a Liquid Buoyancy
apparent loss of weight of a submerged object amount equals the weight of water displaced

Buoyancy in a Liquid Displacement rule:

Flotation Principle of flotation a floating object displaces a weight of fluid equal to its own weight example: A solid iron 1-ton block may displace 1/8 ton of water and sink. The same 1 ton of iron in a bowl shape displaces a greater volume of water—the greater buoyant force allows it to float.

Archimedes’ Principle
CHECK YOUR ANSWER On a boat ride, the skipper gives you a life preserver filled with lead pellets. When he sees the skeptical look on your face, he says that you’ll experience a greater buoyant force if you fall overboard than your friends who wear Styrofoam-filled preservers. A. He apparently doesn’t know his physics. He is correct. Explanation: He’s correct, but what he doesn’t tell you is you’ll drown! Your life preserver will submerge and displace more water than those of your friends who float at the surface.

Archimedes’ Principle
Denser fluids will exert a greater buoyant force on a body than less dense fluids of the same volume. example: ship will float higher in salt water (density = 1.03 g/cm3) than in fresh water (density = 1.00 g/cm3)

Archimedes’ Principle
applies in air The more air an object displaces, the greater the buoyant force on it. If an object displaces its weight, it hovers at a constant altitude, If an object displaces less air, it descends,

Pressure in a Gas greater distance between molecules in a gas than in a liquid molecules in a gas are free from the cohesive forces Molecular motion of gas exerts pressure against a container. For large volumes of gas, gravitational forces limit size and determine shape.

Pressure in a Gas Relationship between pressure and density
gas pressure is proportional to density example: Air pressure and air density inside an inflated tire are greater than the atmospheric pressure and density outside. twice as many molecules in the same volume  air density doubled for molecules moving at the same speed (same temperature), collisions are doubled  pressure doubled

Pressure in a Gas Double density of air by doubling the amount of air
decreasing the volume to half

Pressure in a Gas Boyle’s Law
relationship between pressure and volume for ideal gases an ideal gas is one in which intermolecular forces play no role states that pressure volume is a constant for a given mass of confined gas regardless of changes in pressure or volume (with temperature remaining unchanged) pressure volume = constant means that P1V1 = P2V2

Earth’s Atmosphere Atmosphere ocean of air exerts pressure
The Magdeburg-hemispheres demonstration in 1654 by Otto von Guericke showed the large magnitude of atmosphere’s pressure.

Atmospheric Pressure Atmospheric pressure caused by weight of air
varies from one locality to another not uniform measurements are used to predict weather conditions

Atmospheric Pressure Pressure exerted against bodies immersed in the atmosphere result from the weight of air pressing from above. at sea level is 101 kilopascals (101 kPa) weight of air pressing down on 1 m2 at sea level ~ 100,000 N, so atmospheric pressure is ~ 105 N/m2

Atmospheric Pressure Pressure at the bottom of a column of air reaching to the top of the atmosphere is the same as the pressure at the bottom of a column of water 10.3 m high. Consequence: The highest the atmosphere can push water up into a vacuum pump is 10.3 m. Mechanical pumps that don’t depend on atmospheric pressure don’t have the 10.3-m limit.

Atmospheric Pressure Barometer Aneroid barometer
device to measure atmospheric pressure also determines elevation Aneroid barometer small portable instrument that measures atmospheric pressure calibrated for altitude, then an altimeter

The maximum height to which water can be drunk through a straw __________. A. is 10.3 m is about 76 cm has no limit None of the above Explanation: However strong your lungs may be, or whatever device you use to make a vacuum in the straw, at sea level, the water could not be pushed up by the atmosphere higher than 10.3 m. A. is 10.3 m.

Pascal’s Principle Pascal’s principle
discovered by Blaise Pascal, a scientist and theologian in the 17th century states that a change in pressure at any point in an enclosed fluid at rest is transmitted undiminished to all points in the fluid applies to all fluids—gases and liquids

Pascal’s Principle example: application in hydraulic press
pressure applied to the left piston is transmitted to the right piston a 10-kg load on small piston (left) lifts a load of 500 kg on large piston (right)

Pascal’s Principle application for gases and liquids
seen in everyday hydraulic devices used in construction in auto lifts in service stations Increased air pressure produced by an air compressor is transmitted through the air to the surface of oil in an underground reservoir. The oil transmits the pressure to the piston, which lifts the auto.

Buoyancy in Gas Rule for “lighter-than-air” objects:
When the weight of air displaced by an object is greater than the weight of the object, it rises. When the weight of air displaced by an object equals the weight of the object, it hovers in air. When the weight of air displaced by an object is less than the weight of the object, it is not supported by air.

Buoyancy in Gas Gas-filled balloons
gas prevents atmosphere from collapsing them best buoyancy with hydrogen, the lightest gas (flammable, so seldom used) next-best buoyancy with helium heated air used in sports balloons As balloons rise, atmosphere becomes less dense with altitude.

Buoyancy in Gas Gas-filled balloon will continue to rise until
the weight of displaced air equals the total weight of the balloon the buoyant force on the balloon equals its weight (which says the same thing)

Fluid Flow continuous flow
Volume of fluid that flows past any cross-section of a pipe in a given time is the same as that flowing past any other section of the pipe even if the pipe widens or narrows. Fluid speeds up when it flows from a wide to narrow pipe. Motion of fluid follows imaginary streamlines.

Bernoulli’s Principle
discovered by Daniel Bernoulli, a 15th century Swiss scientist states that where the speed of a fluid increases, internal pressure in the fluid decreases applies to a smooth, steady flow

Bernoulli’s Principle
Streamlines thin lines representing fluid motion closer together, flow speed is greater and pressure within the fluid is less wider, flow speed is less and pressure within the fluid is greater

Bernoulli’s Principle
Laminar flow smooth steady flow of constant density fluid Turbulent flow flow speed above a critical point becomes chaotic

Bernoulli’s Principle

It can’t, as Bernoulli’s principle illustrates. It can, and is consistent with Bernoulli’s principle. Bernoulli’s principle works only for laminar flow, which the stream is not. None of the above B. It can, and is consistent with Bernoulli’s principle.

Bernoulli’s Principle
CHECK YOUR ANSWER The pressure in a stream of water is reduced as the stream speeds up. Can a stream of water from a fire hose actually knock a person off his or her feet? A. It can’t, as Bernoulli’s principle illustrates. It can, and is consistent with Bernoulli’s principle. Bernoulli’s principle works only for laminar flow, which the stream is not. None of the above Explanation: There’s a difference in the pressure within flowing water and the pressure it can exert when its momentum is changed. The pressure that knocks one off his or her feet is due to the change in the water’s momentum, not the pressure within the water. B. It can, and is consistent with Bernoulli’s principle.

Bernoulli’s Principle
Applications of Bernoulli’s Principle Blow on the top surface of a paper and the paper rises. Reason: The pressure of the moving air is less than the atmospheric pressure beneath it. Convertible car roof puffs upward as air moves over its top surface. Reason: The pressure of air moving on the top surface is less than the atmospheric pressure inside the car.

Bernoulli’s Principle
Wind blowing across a peaked roof can lift the roof off the house. Reason: Pressure is reduced as wind gains speed as it flows over the roof. The greater pressure inside the house lifts the roof up. Perfume atomizer Reason: Air rushes across the open end of the tube when you squeeze the bulb, reducing pressure in the tube. Atmospheric pressure on the liquid below pushes it up into the tube.

Bernoulli’s Principle
Trucks passing closely on a highway are drawn to each other. Reason: Air pressure between the trucks is less than pressure on their outer sides pushing inward. Risk of passing ships colliding sideways Reason: Water pressure between the ships is less than pressure on their outer sides pushing inward.

Reduced pressure pulls water upward. Pressure builds up over the crests. Air travels faster over the crests than the troughs. None of the above C. Air travels faster over the crests than the troughs.

Bernoulli’s Principle
CHECK YOUR ANSWER On a windy day, waves in a lake or the ocean are higher than their average height. What factor in Bernoulli’s principle contributes to the increased height? A. Reduced pressure pulls water upward. Pressure builds up over the crests. Air travels faster over the crests than the troughs. None of the above Explanation: The troughs of the waves are partially shielded from the wind, so air travels faster over the crests. Pressure there is thus lower than down below in the troughs. The greater pressure in the troughs pushes water into the even higher crests. C. Air travels faster over the crests than the troughs.
